I was walking down St Mark’s Place in the East Village making my way to Washington Sq Park when I saw her sauntering down the street with her girlfriend.

Her girlfriend was all close to her so I was about to not stop them and ask her for a photo. I guess I was intimidated… But I quickly got over that & asked for a photo in the middle of the street.

I did not engage the girlfriend but felt this tension coming from her. It was a little weird. Or maybe I was the weird one.

After I assured that the photo would not be used for any violent mastubatory purposes or anything else raunchy, she agreed to pose.

I have lived up to my promises….
